An Era in Progress

Written in 1976 for the Bicentennial Celebration of Heidelberg by a group of volunteers who worked to

bring Heidelberg's history to print and pictures. 

 

In 1970 a group of citizens in Heidelberg created the Heidelberg Athletic Association. Over the past few decades this association has continued on promoting community involvement. There have been Heidelberg Softball teams, sports affiliations, and more. Modern day Heidelberg Athletic Association promotes and directs the annual Heidelberg Community Day in September as well as managing all aspects of the Heidelberg parks and fields.
